American Scene: University police chief retires amid hazing probes
CINCINNATI — A gay student whose southwestern Ohio high school prohibited him from wearing a T-shirt designed to urge tolerance of gays is suing the school, saying it is violating his right to freedom of expression.
The mother of 16-year-old Maverick Couch filed the federal lawsuit on his behalf against Wayne Local School District and the principal of Waynesville High School, northeast of Cincinnati.
Maverick is a junior at the school. His lawsuit says he has been threatened with suspension if he wears a shirt bearing the message “Jesus Is Not a Homophobe.” The lawsuit says school officials told him that the shirt is “sexual in nature” and inappropriate.

LOS ANGELES — Donald Trump wished a transgender woman who wants to be Miss Universe good luck Tuesday as his organization said she can vie for Canada’s spot in the pageant.
The Miss Universe Organization said it actually made the decision Monday to let 23-year-old Jenna Talackova compete in the 2012 competition to become Canada’s contestant.
Miss Talackova, a Vancouver resident, underwent a sex change four years ago after being born a male.
Her sex change initially led organizers in Canada to disqualify her from the 61st Miss Universe Canada pageant in May, citing a rule that she must be “naturally born” a woman.
Woman who was world’s oldest doctor dies at 114
ATLANTA — Dr. Leila Denmark, the world’s oldest practicing physician when she retired at age 103, died Sunday in Athens, her family members said. She was 114.
Dr. Denmark became the first resident physician at Henrietta Egleston Hospital for Children in Atlanta when it opened in 1928, said her grandson, Steven Hutcherson of Atlanta. She also admitted the first patient at the hospital, now part of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
She loved helping children, and it showed in the way she would turn to the next family waiting to see her, Mr. Hutcherson said.
“She would say, ‘Who is the next little angel?’ ” he said.
